    Linda Pastan, a well-known contemporary American poet, has written more than (40. a dozen) books of poetry, received countless awards, and won (41. quite a few) honors, (42.which include) the Poet Laureate of Maryland from ’91 to ’95.

    quite a few : 是片語,代表【不少】

    of 是不應該存在的,因為 include 是及物動詞。which include 是表示【其中包括】。

    themes 是主題。其他的字都不是解主題。

    deceptive 是指會誤導讀者。她的詩淺白,不說教,誤導讀者乍看以為淺薄。

    to the extreme 是片語,到極點。

    Reading the moving poem To a Daughter Leaving Home written in free verse, one can sense the mother's anxiety about her daughter possibly falling off the bike. This contrasts strikingly with the little girl's excited reaction to her new acquisition, which gives her mobility, (48. and enables) her to expand her horizons, and, in turn, equips her with greater latitude. The poet not only ingeniously captures two opposing feelings, but also elaborately makes the capability (49. of riding) a bike symbolic of independence.

    and enables : 只有這個才能有一句複句。

    of riding :capability 後面要跟 of。

  • 42題 若考慮到介系詞"of",答案宜為 (B) inclusive

    45題 假設語氣,宜選擇 (C) were talking

    48題 考平行結構,應該是 (A) enables:

    "gives..., enables..., and equips...
